Not only is this place a total dive (it's nestled in what looks to be an abandoned strip mall), but the food was blah. I was deceived by other reviews that said it was good in spite of the atmosphere. No. Terrible sushi and my husband said his Chinese dinner was bland. Never again.

I love sushi and have ate at many sushi restaurants. I have even eaten pre-made sushi from a gas station and this was the worst ever. There is something wrong with the rice. It's really mushy and tasteless. Also ordered pad Thai to share with my husband and it was awful too. Sooooo disappointed.

We should have known just walking into the place that this place had food as bad as it looked. I was excited since this was the first all u can eat sushi place I found in MI. But it was a let down. Kroger's sushi is even better. Also, there soups were not good and they try to charge you... More

We visited for a late lunch on a Saturday; there were about 2 dozen people here. We were promptly seated and waited on; food arrived at just the right intervals. My companion thought the soup was too cold, but I thought it was just right! I had a spicy shrimp dish and it was nicely spicy! This is a very... More

Was excited for the all you can eat sushi buffet. But there's a catch. If you don't eat everything you order you get charged on top of the $22.95. I ordered the Traverse City roll and the salmon was warm, the rice was mushy, and there was sauce on the roll, which was not indicated in the description. I ate... More

The sushi was amazing, the Lo Mein was the best I've ever had. It is a must try! Only problem is there is only one server so if it gets busy you may be waiting a bit, and this place is definitely in need of some updating. But, never judge a book by its cover!

Who doesn't love a reasonably priced sushi buffet? I recommend going for lunch when the buffet is $17. Service was good and the sushi was too. Not knock your socks off, but a good value if you can put away more than a few plates!

Panda North is possibly a hidden gem in TC. Located in Logan's Landing, they offer really great, fresh food. Their sushi is wonderful! And I think the best value in TC. We often pick Panda North as our destination, and when my daughter comes home from college, it's practically the first thing she asks for!

The owners are wonderful and the Chinese food is delicious! We eat there a couple of times per week. We work nearby, so it makes is convenient to get healthy lunches and not fast food.

They give you more rice then sushi. The sushi is mediocre at best. I went there with family for the first time I tried the all you can eat sushi for $22.95, my order was taken the first time and then I had to take my order up myself or I wouldn't got any more food. They were under staff... More
